Many of the crew here at Cold Steel study and train in at least one Martial Art, and several members of our team also work in Hollywood as weapons consultants, stunt men and fight choreographers. The classic Chinese hatchet has appeared in countless Kung Fu movies over the years, and we’ve always been fascinated with its use! Our interpretation of this classic blade, the Axe Gang Hatchet is no mere movie prop! It features a differentially heat treated, drop-forged head – which has a hard edge capable of reaching razor sharpness, but a soft steel body for absorbing impact. It also features a hand-picked straight grain American Hickory handle embellished with the Kanji characters for “Axe Gang”in. This stylish and iconic hatchet is as eye catching as it is durable.
